If Henry Paulson called and asked my opinion (fat change since I am not a billionaire), I would say,
Hank old boy,
While I am not start enough to figure all of this out, I don't think I want my money in this deal. So if you would kindly just leave my money (and my grandchildren and great grandchildren) out of this "billionaire's bailout" maybe just maybe we can part on friendly terms.
700 billion dollars this week, a few billion in the near future for the auto companies, and lets not forget that wee bit of money spent on the war.
I keep hearing "Too big to let fail", Hank do you think that "America is to big to fail"?

Dwight David "Ike" Eisenhower. Ike was our last president elected before television played a major role in the election process and therefore in my opinion, the last president elected solely on merit and not personality.
This post is not about politics but about "Hurricane Ike". While it reeked havoc on Texas, it was a none issue at my house. Hurricanes along the Gulf Coast always adds dollars to my pay check because of the added milk needed to serve evacuees .
Hurricane Gustov added dollars but brought with it lots of rain and therefore I had to drive my truck to work and not my gas saving motorcycle.
Hurricane Ike added dollars but I was able to ride my bike because we missed the heavy rain. I am not unsympathetic toward the victims but just realistic about the over all picture. While doing my job, I know I am helping in my own way.
